Thanks for being so charming

“The world is too much with us, getting and spending, we lay waste our time.” Why on earth these words penetrated my mind when I was getting ready to enjoy one of those rare scenes when the sky was absolutely free from smoky clouds. Anyway, let me not waste my time on occasions when our mind would keep jumping from one type of thought to another. Let me not even think of anything else… My lord! The sky, right now, is blue and bright and absolutely calm and the trees are dancing to the tune of the accompanying calm and bright sky… ok, let me enjoy it! Wow!

The runway was the sea itself!

To be, or not to be, that was the question. Whether it was nobler in the mind to OK the decision to visit one of those attractive islands in Canada or to postpone the same till the weather says, “OK, OK…, I’ll take care of it!”

And, much to our pleasure, the Sun raised the green signal. Soon, we got into a ship and reached the island, and stayed in a Hotel. As we watched the sea and the surrounding forest-like areas, we found ourselves in a unique world and realized the meaning of “Nature’s Kingdom”.

Soon, we found ourselves in a restaurant where there were several options, both in veg and non-veg foods!

Then, the usual evening walk, supper and conversations which touched upon various interesting subjects…”

Soon after, we were asleep and woke up at about 6 O’clock followed by morning walk and breakfast… and a visit to the near-by beach.

What’s so surprising was the fact that it was not a poor village area as we thought. There were huge buildings and shops all around.

What’s even more exciting was our trip back to our area on a flight with limited seats, but exciting. The runway was the sea itself!

Just a 50-50!

Right now, it is difficult to say which party is dominating in the one-day match. It is not a sunny day but still it is not so cold, though the trees are blowing their heads off and on to cause some difficulty for the people who are not at their houses.
Even as I write this, there is a message from the sun, “don’t be in a hurry, open the window and you will find the rays broader and warmer.”
Yeah, much to my relief, the message from the sun was so heart-warming!
Now, the question, “who will win the match” is still there but it won’t be a match which ends in a draw!…

Serene and beautiful!

Certain places bring back your memories in a jiffy! The other day when I revisited that place, I rushed to my favorite seat and looked around and to my joy, every spot was in its place. The framework was of course, the hills surrounding hundreds of houses and the serene atmosphere. The architects of these houses have made the area calm and almost identical, much to the relief of those who live in the area.
Whatever it may be, the blue sky and the white clouds make the area calm and beautiful. The birds too play the role of making the area as beautiful as ever.

Sun, the almighty!

When the Sun rules over us, His Highness makes it sure that half the world is busy and the other half “sleepy” (not so sleepy in view of certain TV programs).
The games of His majesty look more like chess games where the touch of certain coins would make the seas and rivers change their colors in order the produce water in different forms in abundance.
Rain or shine, the whole world depend on His majesty to lead a happy life, no matter how old or young we are. Of course, our poets and writers have made the world enchanting and powerful.

Blue Umbrella

It was blue all over! East or West, north or South; not merely dominating but snatching their share equally and fully! “Yeah, it is for you guys who curse us for being cloudy or sunny to the core. So, enjoy it without cursing us for being what we are or what we are not. You may ignore us but not yours kids! So, wait for their reactions… Here they are. “Daddy, it is a blue tent”. “Mom, here is a huge Umbrella”. “A blue one, so big!” “Uncle, what happened to those white and red colours?”

Anyway, when nature is free from rain or summer showers, the sky is invariably darkish white or playing hide and seek. Right now, it looks like a huge blue umbrella!

When you are lazy!

To be or not to be … That’s the question. Whether it is nobler in the mind to drag on in my own insipid way or to take arms against all lame excuses to drag on and on?

It is still there… the bone-chilling weather and a lazy mind! Anyway, before taking the pen and paper, I went to the kitchen to prepare my favorite coffee and said to myself, “feel the aroma, and sip, sip, sip!” wow!

I picked up the day’s Newspaper and started reading. Thank god! Most of the news items were as dull as ever and I laid the papers down and took out an old magazine… and went through the Joke-Column for a while and stopped writing. If winter comes can summer be far behind!

Rain, Shine, Snow, Wind and the Common Man

Nature has to appear in different forms and colors, keeping the people in different parts in good humor or in not-so-happy moods in other parts! The mood of the people in different parts of the world depends on how hot the sun in during summer or how dark and windy the area is during winter cum rainy days. Frankly speaking, worst days are when the wind is in full form in company with mild rains or snows which penetrate your warm cloths on which we have to invest lots of money! Anyway, mid-summer may not be very pleasant but those who are interested in sports, especially cricket, nothing on earth can spoil their mood!
Whether you like it or not, we need all sorts of weather in order to overcome shortage of water or electricity.
Hats off to all kinds of weather!

Dancing to the tune of nature

A couple of months ago, it used to be bright and sunny. The sun took its own time to say, “Bye, bye guys,” rather reluctantly, but you had to wait till 9:30pm to see the glorious sunset!
Anyway, slowly but steadily, the weather was neither too hot nor too cold and one was tempted to go for the usual evening walk, enjoying the gentle breeze and affordable sunny days. Occasionally one was tempted to go through the weather forecast to know what’s in store for us on each and every day. Your friends and relatives gave you a hint on what’s in store on a particular day.
What prompted me to write these lines was the unexpected “snow fall”, which I witnessed after a post lunch cat nap. My goodness! We are still in the grip of the “Snow rain” accompanied by massive dry leaves!
Let us hope for the best.

Rain or shine?

It looked like a 5day match. The team SunnyDay was at its best even as the opposition CloudyDay was making it difficult for the SunnyDay batsmen to pile up a huge total.
The Day 2 was fully dominated by cloudy days with the support of cold winds and occasional drizzles that forced the crowd to go home and the teams to the “Dressing Room!”
